The most common therapeutic procedure performed is known as a “spinal manipulation” or “chiropractic adjustment.” The purpose of manipulation is to restore joint mobility by manually applying a controlled force into joints that have become hypomobile – or restricted in their movement as a result of a tissue injury. Manipulation, or adjustment of the affected joint and tissues, restores mobility, thereby alleviating pain and muscle tightness, and allowing tissues to heal. Chiropractic can be used to treat:
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Acupuncture provides safe help for a wide range of health problems including chronic and acute pain. Acupuncture also has very few side effects and is a useful alternative for patients who do not want to take pain medications. The aim is not only to eliminate or alleviate symptoms, but more importantly to treat the underlying cause, increase the ability to function and improve the quality of life. Acupuncture can be used to treat:
Addictions (smoking, food)
Headaches (migraines and tension)
Low back pain
Physical Rehabilitation is a medical specialty that involves the process of restoring function for a person who has been disabled as a result of a disease, disorder, or injury.
The goal is to build strength and stability around your most vulnerable areas, while improving mobility, balance and joint function to decrease the potential for injuries. We believe in improving posture and alignment to allow your joints to move more efficiently to build up your most injury-prone areas to prevent acute and chronic pain.
CUPPING & DRY NEEDLING
Cupping is a form of alternative therapy by which cups are placed on the skin to create suction effect, like an inverse massage. Cupping pulls blood to a region to stimulate healing and is effective at stretching tight fascia and muscles.
Dry needling uses a very fine, solid filament needle to cause a small, precise injury or “lesion” in the tissue when it enters the body. Needling in a painful ‘trigger point’ or muscular knot frequently provokes a “twitch” response from the muscle that will relax it and reduce inflammation. Dry needling can address muscle, tendon and myofascial pain and is very effective in reducing trigger points.
ACTIVE RELEASE AND SOFT TISSUE MOBILIZATION
Active Release is a soft tissue method that focuses on relieving tissue tension via the removal of fibrosis/adhesions which can develop in tissues as a result of overload due to repetitive use. Upon removing restrictions that inhibit full range of motion, and in restoring full function and performance to affected soft tissues. This therapy can result in significant increases in sports performance of power, strength, and flexibility.
Therapeutic massage is the manipulation of muscle and connective tissue to enhance the function of those tissues and promote relaxation and well-being. It can ease tension and reduce pain. Massage can also be highly effective for reducing the symptoms of arthritis, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, and other disorders of the muscles and/or nervous system.
